The sold out already registered for 8 and 9 March prompted the organizers to add a third date
Of Caterina Ruggi D’Aragona
«Fiorello presents … Florence!». The tour that marks the return of the inimitable Sicilian performer, after five years, in Italian theaters, arrives at Verdi. A return very attracted by all the national public, even if (or precisely because) in the meantime its acute exuberance has reached practically all of us through the many and unforgettable radio and television forays. Including the last three Sanremo festivals.
And in fact the wait was so great that the sold out in record times for the first two dates scheduled for Tuesday 8 and Wednesday 9 March led to the addition of a thirdwhich anticipates Fiorello’s arrival on the stage in via Ghibellina on Monday 7. It is certainly not the first time. After the triennial success of “I wanted to be a dancer …” which with over 800 thousand spectators in more than 90 dates had always sold outthe phenomenal “Fiorello Show Tour” had practically tripled the Tuscan attendance by returning twice to the Nelson Mandela Forum, for a total of five dates in 2010. By now the social networks had fully taken over, an avalanche of selfies accompanied the stay di Fiorello in Florence during the staging of his latest one man show so far presented, “L’ora del Rosario”, in November 2015.
One can only imagine fireworks for the return to Verdi of the show man with the new variety written by himself, together with Francesco Bozzi, Pigi Montebelli and Federico Taddia. A show which, however, as announced by the, speaking of Florence to the Florentines, with the same mechanism experienced in Fermo, where tour debuted in November, and then in L’Aquila, Brescia, Bergamo, Padua and Bologna. Always winking at the public in the exhilarating alternation of improvisations and scenic experiments, mimic inventions and forays by surprise guests. With inevitable unscripted moments that, involving the spectators, will break the trend marked by a fluid musical lineup performed by the historic band capable of keeping up with the fast pace of Fiorello. There will be references to current events, the sharp and ironic look of the artist on Italy and the Italians, on the changes in habits and customs. Always in the name of lightness and good humor. But it is all almost impossible to leave a script that, in the inimitable “Fiorello style”, to the free improvisation of the showman. From city to city, night after night, a different show will be staged.
